Discipline

I have a 16 month old boy and he gets into everything, which I know is normal. When he gets into the things he isn't supposed to I tell him no and take him away from the area. He then returns to keep messing with it. Do I just keep taking him away? Do I spank his hand? Time out? I don't know what is best to do. I hate spanking his hand because I feel like that doesn't teach him anything. I am just finding discipline a little difficult.

After a while, if you keep moving him and saying no, he should begin to understand. If you can keep things out of his reach, or put them in a cabinet with a child-proof latch, that would be better so he can't get to it in the first place.
